This looks like a lot of steps but it's really easy and they are necessary to turn out right...the whole process takes about 30 minutes. The butter will brown (not burn), the onions will sweeten, the green beans will fry and the sauce will carmalize nicely. DELICIOUS

    When the vegies are about half way cooked through.. -Stir -place a lid on the pan -turn heat down to medium.

    When the vegies are cooked through and the sausages are about half cooked through.. -remove the lid -turn the heat back up to medium high -move the food to the edges of the pan creating a well in the center -pour the rice from both boxes into the well in the center of the pan. Stir the rice in the center 2 or 3 times coating the rice grains with oil ..I would say to 'brown' them but they will actually turn white/opaque. Don't burn the rice.
